Democrat empowering the violent and the criminal in their civil war against law and order and decent law-abiding Americans.
The Left is publicly vilifying our police officers. This is the result. The crime in New York City is out of control. Criminals are emboldened due to the policies of New York City’s anti-cop Marxist mayor. As such, it is open season on the NYPD.

The crime scene detective was in Queens working a burglary that occurred hours earlier when a man appeared to come from behind and hit him with a long object on the head, according to video footage of the incident posted to social media.
Welcome to NYC!
Even as our Detectives investigate crimes they’re attacked by emboldened criminals, who have quickly realized there are no consequences for law breakers in our city.

The detective took a knee on the sidewalk and the suspect fled. He sustained minor injuries and the suspect was chased by nearby officers.
The New York Police Department told Fox News someone was arrested and charged with assault on a police officer, in addition to other criminal counts.
The identity of the suspect was not released.
In a statement, Detective Endowment Association President Paul DiGiacomo blasted elected officials over the surge in violent and brazen attacks on police officers.
“If there’s anyone wondering why this happened, they can ask their elected officials who have created a city of no consequences for criminality,” he said. “The city is circling the drain and NYPD cops are the only ones trying to help the public swim to safety.”
New York has been marred by violent crime this year. Just this past weekend, 31 people were shot. As of April 18, 364 people have been shot in the Big Apple marking an almost 60% increase during the same time period last year, according to police figures.
